For illegally entering america
ha ha ha ha ha ha ha
his passport says Tommy Sheridan
but that's not his real name
The BBC report isn't particularly clear.
From reading around, it looks like the guy's real name is Stephen Lennon, but his passport says his name is Paul Harris. On this occasion he tried to enter the states using the passport of a friend, called Andrew McMaster.
Perhaps that's where you got it from.
am now breathing a sigh of relief.
Anyone would go to jail for that. Why wasn't he allowed in America though? That's a bit dodge isn't it? What's he actually done other than have political views? I don't know the facts at all, that's why I'm asking before anyone has a cry into their che guevara t-shirt.
breached bail conditions and has been cautioned for possession of cocaine. I think there's more.
so it's because he's broken the law peristantly and violently liek a twat rather than it just being him?
So everyone who has a criminal record, even if it's for driving or something, can't ever go to America?
but pretty much.
can't enter under the Visa Waiver programme.
"You knew that because you tried before and you had not got in, and you knew the reason for that - because, rightly or wrongly, the US authorities do not welcome people in their country who have convictions of the kind that you have".
Not sure what the convictions were.
Previously jailed for assault and has other drugs related charges.
What you want me to do? Read more than the headline? What am I?
